NFD!! New Fretless Day!
Been GAS'n for a Vintage White Fender Jazz fretless lately...well came across one on eBay. This very nice Fender Japan Jazz. The serial number puts it in the early to mid 80's, and is in great condition. Do not think it was played much, the fretboard is in great shape. Very minor wear. And only one very small ding on the bass.
Fairly light weight. Not sure if it is Alder or Basswood. Don't know if they used Basswood back than
It has a very nice playing neck and sounds like....well a Fender Jazz Fretless! Took off the White pickguard that came with it, looks better without it.
I believe this is a non-export model. I don't recall seeing any un-lined Japanese fretless basses here in the US back than....and still.
